Having the same issue with my 95 Lumina. First determine if its on the left or right side, then determine if its the wheel bearing or a bearing in the drive axle. If theres clunking associated with the humming (like mine) then its most likely the latter. Is cheaper to just replace the entire drive axle too by the way
103,000 square kilometers = 39,768.5 square miles.
wheelbearing or cv axle enjoy
when the pump is going out it will make a humming noise from the bearings even if the resivore is full.
The humming noise can be in your exhaust system. The exhaust will heat up and seal the area where there can be a leak. The hot exhaust will cause the noise to decrease.
Yes a humming out back could be a fuel pump failing. I have gone through 2 in my 1993 Century - 150 k miles - They have to drain and drop the tank to repair
every 100 k...
your mom is mercury
a hummimg bird can fly at 63 mph. I disagree. A humming bird can fly at speeds up to 71 miles (80 kilometers) per hour.
We recommend every 30,000 miles.
The average speed that a humming bird flies is 25-30 miles per hour.
Probably around 20 with a combination of city and highway driving
If the engine is a 4 cylinder it has no timing belt and no maintenance is required. However is it is a V6 the cam belt MUST be replaced at 110,000 miles. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. So you have a little time before it needs replacing.
it gets 18-20MPG in the city and 25-28MPG on highway
No. Bermuda is not a country, it is a colony, and is about 1000 miles North of the Caribbean Sea. By comparison, it is 768 miles from Cape Sable Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada.
just want you to know you are not alone. I too have a '01 sable and I'm having the exact problems. I have approx 190,000 miles on it though.
According to a website I was looking at : For a 1995 Mercury Sable , the highway mileage is : 3.0 liter V6 engine ( 27 miles per U.S. gallon ) 3.8 ( 26 )
I'm getting an average of about 20 MPG in town and 30 MPG highway on my 2000 Sable, which shouldn't been too much difference than the 2002. EPA rating is 18/27.
Most likely you have a problem with the torque converter or the valve body in the transmission. If you have around 85,000-120,000 miles on your Sable/Taurus, this is a common issue. Having a transmission specialist look at the vehicle is an expensive but necessary pitfall.
The humming is caused by a " idol control valve" on top of the motor. It controls the amount of air going to the motor, and when it gets dirty or broken the humming starts. You can take it off and clean it out, (with brake cleaner) but my truck had 200,000 miles on it so I got a new one. It's only 2 bolts, easy to get to, the part is about 26 bucks most places. Good luck.
Just replace it if you have not done so in the last 36,000 miles. or if you suspect it is clogged.
Perhaps similar to my problem in forward . Transmission slipping, Get a Xmission fluid and filter change every 40,000 miles. Sable and Tauras have been known to have Xmission problems.
My neighbor and I just saw a bumblebee humming bird on August 24, 2011, in Waunakee,Wi. Waunakee is about 5 miles north of Madison, the capital of Wisconsin.
cause everyone does
On a 2000 Mercury Sable : The 3.0 litre " Vulcan " V6 engine has ( 1 timing CHAIN ) The 3.0 litre " Duratec " V6 engine has ( 2 timing CHAINS , 1 CHAIN to each cylinder head )
